The Mysterious Island of Antirrhopus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Archchancellor Anise IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.184 billion Antirrhoppans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dynotopia. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antirrhopusian economy, worth a remarkable 6,916 trillion dynoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 264,143 dynoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Antirrhopus's national animal is the velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Twelve Codes.

Antirrhopus is ranked 48,780th in the world and 2,141st in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,988.72 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
